London Walking Tour: The Grand Surrey Canal

London, meet at Surrey Quays on DLR at 11am.

Join Lou Cohen, a City of Westminster London walking tour guide to find out more about The Grand Surrey Canal.

The Grand Surrey Canal was an ambitious project to link the Thames to Croydon and Epsom and the south coast.  It joined the Thames at Greenland Dock, a much older ship dock than St Katharine’s and just along the river was the site of the Royal Navy Victualling Yard.  Step back in time with Lou Cohen to explore this old part of London to see the place where Raleigh laid his cloak for Queen Elizabeth I and how the area played its part in World War II.

Tickets cost £18 per person and includes the fully guided tour.

The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404

The Old Wellingtonian Lodge No.3404 is a Masonic Lodge for Old Wellingtonians, Governors, Masters and Officers of Wellington College, present and past, whether already a Freemason or those interested in becoming one. It is part of the Public School Lodges’ Council; a forum for the private lodges of many of our great public schools.

We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry. Also, those who are already Freemasons are warmly welcomed to join us; especially those from PSLC Lodges or Old Wellingtonians from other Lodges – just ask!

Members of the Lodge meet in London three times each year: in February, October and November. For our May meeting we return to Wellington College to celebrate our Freemasonry and gives us the opportunity to support College charities and initiatives.
